of perfection. back.elcome >>> welcome back. the market seeing red all day. bob pisani on it, on the floor of the nyc. what's going on here, bob? >> two things, cyprus, and number two, global economic slowdown is the story today. take a look at the dow industrials. see that bottom around 2:00? we turned around when word came out that the cypriot government was creating a resolution process to wind down bad banks, and also, they're going to try to introduce a bill to protect depositors of up to 100,000 euros. that helped. global economic slowed down. transports were a major issue again today. and remember, we did see fedex week yesterday, weak again today. but others weak. like landstar and gatx. this was a big issue today. those stocks never really recovered here. multi-industry companies, here's the global slowdown. companies that work across many different platforms, many different countries were all down here today, 1, 2, or 3%. how about the home builders? a little disappointing, maria. existing home sales didn't break the psychologically important 5 million share mark. all were down t
us through that. we're going to start with bob pisani. risk seems to be back on in the market a little bit. >> that's a good point. for a long time the bears have been insisting that the global economy is not as healthy as this teflon stock market in the united states would indicate, and now they've got some ammunition. two companies from fed ex and from caterpillar. now, caterpillar had dismal three-month sales numbers. really shocked a lot of people. fed ex, of course, had disappointing earnings situation, lower than expected international volume. now people are saying, see, we told you. here are who big companies who are saying it's not as big as everybody said. deere got a downgrade from wells fargo. i'll talk more about that in the 2:00. a little bit of good news on housing. keeps rolling along. lenore, 34% increase in building. >> we'll see you back in a few minutes. ty, we'll send it back up to you. >> thank you very much. bob just gave you a very clear shot at the market picture, so what's driving it? well, obviously three developing stories and we're going to cue you
ahead, john, as we look at what mr. bob herbold said. >> oracle's got a really tough culture. this is q4, this is their time to perform. they're out to make money. that's what it comes down to. i don't know if they'll get their feelings hurt and turn in resumes. >> gentlemen, thank you very much. >>> hewlett-packard, a shaky turnaround, but hewlett-packard still has money to investors. boosting its quarterly dividend. hp stock up more than 60% this year so far. also, of course, watching the rival dell. our andrew ross sorkin at an event in new orleans, he's reporting there that the sentiment is that blackstone, the big private equity firm, will not make a bid for dell. those comments moving the stock and not in a good way. it's down 12 cents. that little chart kind of overstates the amount of the drop. but it is down today, sue. >> indeed it is, ty. thank you. >>> and now to the russian rage over the way the europeans are handling the crisis in cyprus. a place where a lot of powerful russians have an awful lot of money. steve sedgwick is live in moscow reporting on possible russian solut

of some of the major groups. >> kenney, come on in and join the group. bob mentioned the financials. what can happen in europe might eventually happen here in the united states. >> i don't suspect it really koul could happen but it gives investors an excuse to be cautious and take things off the table. we went right to the high and ran right into resistance. again, it gave people a chance to say let me take some money off the table and see where it goes. it's st end of the month. we will go into thursday with a little more to the upside but i don't think we're breaking any highs this week. >> if it really reflects european policy -- >> that's the big question. >> this is a victory for the moral hazard crowd. people claiming that endless bailouts are just wrong. but it introduces a whole new can f worms. >> it doesn't put the issue to sleep. only continues to bring it to the surface. >> what do you bring to the markets today? >> i think the market will end lower. it will churn all day and end here. there is no sense of panic but no reason to go out and buy new. it will -- we are stuck in t
business and our own bob pisani. good to have you on the program. >> good to be here. >> once again, europe on the front pages. it's going to be bad for confidence. do you think people should look at this and say, wait a minute, let me take money out of the stock market? >> well, i don't think that's going to be the long-term sitwausi situation. in the short term it raises a lot of nerves. the good news is that they're working towards making this a little bit more palatable. perhaps lowering the amount they ask for from insured depositors or perhaps even eliminating that and just focusing on the uninsured depositors. >> that's not happening. >> not yet. again, there's the possibility. >> bob, the futures were ugly over the weekend when this story was unfolding. asia was down 2% overnight. we are not by any stretch of the imagination that way. is this about the resilience of our market or are we just figuring out cyprus is a one shot deal? >> you're right. concern was high yesterday. why has there been no freak out today? as i call around, the market tends to believe the ecb and the fed are
which was hit back in october of 2007. bob pisani runs through the sectors leading the rally early on today. bob? >> important thing is what's happened is while we're not at new high, we're close enough. a number of sector, bill, are already essentially at historic highs. a mix of the defensive and cyclic cal naal names. essentially at or near historic highs. there's a group that's kind of in the middle, bill, that hit historic highs in 2008 and are just off of them. just below them about 10%. that's the utility stocks and the energy stocks and the materials stocks are just off of their historic highs but heading in the right direction, at least. finally, here's the really tough one, these are the guys that have never gotten close. telecom stocks and the tech stocks were destroyed in the dot com bubble in 2000 and essentially have never gotten close back to old historic highs. 50% off. financials got destroyed in the financial crisis of 2008. they never really got all the way back. here's the problem, bill. financials and tech are the two biggest weightings in the s&p 500. they're
